17 May 2009: Night 2 at the Royal Albert Hall for Eric Clapton & His Band
Eric Clapton's second of eleven nights at the Royal Albert Hall didn't hold any surprises. The set list on 17 May 2009 was identical to opening night. One fan who checked in with Where's Eric! by blackberry noted that the show highlights were again the two opening numbers "Going Down Slow" and "Old Love," the acoustic version of "Layla" and "Little Queen of Spades."
Show number three at the Royal Albert Hall happens Tuesday 19 May 2009. The Arc Angels will open for Eric Clapton on all dates at the venue. Speaking of The Arc Angels, If you live in the Greater London Area or will be in London on 30 May 2009, The Arc Angels will be headlining their own club gig at Bush Hall. Where's Eric! is giving away four pairs of tickets to The Arc Angels headlining gig. CLICK HERE to learn more about the band and enter the contest.
